    Wired is more stable ,and secured then wirelless most routers now are both ,so you can use either or. If you are running Vista make sure it has a windows logo on the box for better compability with the router.

    As for the best it all varies I use the dlink 625 which is both wired ,and wireless. If you plainning on use the wireless make sure the router can broadacast the wireless network though out the house the boxes should say how many feet it broadacasts.

    If you have a big house ,or going use though floors like router in the basement you might want to look at a sepearte attennna to boost the signal.


    If you are using dsl though make sure your modem isn't a brouter modem+router it might be able to do wireless already ,so double check.

    This may be a challenge..without trying one first..or doing some sort of site survey...you may find the physical setup is just too much for a wireless to reach. Many variables which can chop that wireless signal down. May try to span the distance using AC powerline adapters. But for wireless..try an N router first.

    The Linksys WRT600N is doing well in various writeups comparing routers, as well as their less expensive WRT310N.

    DLink has a DIR655 model which is doing well, the less expensive 625 model also, if you're into gaming..the DGL4500.
